So, last night with [ profile] dorama_watch, I watched the jmovie, Heavenly Forest (Tada, Kimi wo Aishiteru). Tamaki Hiroshi is in it, and I was promised a cute sweet love story, so I was down with that and jumped on aboard!

I will warn you that if you watch it, YOU NEED TO BRACE YOURSELF AT THE 75% MARK. You should see what's going on by then and probably can figure it out yourselves, but up until then, it was exactly what is said on the box - adorable love story between Tamaki Hiroshi and a cute little bed headed spaz.

...and no, her name isn't Nodame.

Really, though, how am I supposed to resist this man?

Anyway, I capped this scene because 1) it was a cute set up of a kiss. She asked him to kiss her for a picture for a competition. her theme was "lovers," and 2) i was honestly expecting to cap it and post it over at [ profile] drama_hunt (which is an AWESOMELY fun new comm that [ profile] anenko is heading up for posting picspams of various cliches in dramas - SO FUN!) for the "awkward kiss" tag. The tag that is used when two lifeless pairs of lips are touching, but no one seems to be enjoying makeout city.

But! Pleasant surprise!

it's not the hottest kiss in history, but it is, in face, a DECENT KISS. by jdrama standards, it's downright OBSCENE.

Shizuru and Makoto are friends, although Shizuru is totally in love with Makoto and has been for about 2 years. He likes photography, and taught her how to use a camera and develop the film. Shizuru asks if he'll help her with her project for the competition. Her theme is "lovers," and she'd like to take a picture of him kissing her.

...this all sounds very contrived, but it really doesnt come off that way. It's very straightforward and very sweet.

Anyway. They meet in their forest, and Shizuru has the camera set up. Makoto is very nervous and twitchy. It's adorable.

Have you gotten taller? )

trying out my new dreamwidth account and the crossposting coolness..(btw alianora on dreamwidth. no clue what im doing, but hey! ps. what the hell am i supposed to do with only SIX ICONS?!)

i watched half the ep last night and had half a live blog written up, but then i managed to delete it by accident, so we're going off of things i remember.

external flame is the insert song. AWESOME. )

Im watching Love Shuffle along with the others at [ profile] dorama_watch, and here are my thoughts on episode two, in very little resembling order.


pajama parties and pool! )

We're on a brief picspam hiatus at the moment, due to the fact ive been in GA and away from most of my discs and dramas and episodes and movies and the disturbingly large list i have of things to watch. BUT! I will be back in NC tomorrow, and will commence annoying you with such things as:

-Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Nephrite - All Too Human
-Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Losing the mask
-Full House the kdrama: 3 attempted proposals
-Hana Yori Dango: Makino punches things. And Dorkface. And a bear.
-Proposal Daisakusen: Manga cafes or pushing taxis


I might also do some Roswell picspam, because ive only seen one Candy focused picspam so far. everything else has been Max/Liz, and that doesn't fly for me.

Anyway! While i was in GA, i managed to make my kid some felt food for the kitchen he is getting for his birthday (WHICH IS ON THE 23rd, HOLY CRAP VOLDEMORT IS TURNING TWO. BRACE YOURSELVES), as well as actually finishing watching Proposal Daisakusen, which ive only been watching at a snail's pace for the past several MONTHS. and probably the only thing that prompted me to actually finish it, and push past the fear of Kenzo making a complete idiot out of himself was the fact I currently have a crush on Yamapi.

..a tiny crush. teeny. it's miniscule. It's not like Ive bothered my friends into sending me NewS mp3s, or that's ive downloaded four different live versions of Daite Senorita or anything...*cough*

Really, it's nothing. It has nothing to do with Pi's hips, or his emo hair, or HIS HIPS, or anything.

Regardless of my issues, ProDai is a little slow to get started - it's not boring, but it draws you in. It's...gentle, is how [ profile] literarylemming put it, and we'll go with that.

the fact that it involves a fairy and time travel is an added bonus to the Yamapi cake, but it is honestly very good. I enjoyed it tremendously, even though i had to take breaks sometimes - mainly due to my (never fully realized) fear that Kenzo was going to embarrass himself RIGHT THERE ON SCREEN IN FRONT OF ME, and i'd never be able to look him in the face again.

...or something.

I was very hesitant going in, because it is about a guy going back in time to stop the girl he loves from marrying someone else. that..squicked me. but they handle it so's always little things he does, making her smile at this time, wanting to be the first one to wish her happy's not creepy.

and it's very heartfelt and moving and i totally cried through the entire episode eight. I COULDNT HELP IT. HE WAS SO SAD AND WITHDRAWN AND HE LOVES HER SO.

So..a vid might be in the making. maybe. i have new software, and i have to learn how to use it. a learning experience! that's what it is!

Other then that, I started watching Love Shuffle tonight, and wow, am i going to love this show! it isnt enough that it has Tamaki and Shota in it, NOOOOO, it has to be FUNNY and CLEVER and then throw in a little HALF NAKED SHOTA and DRIPPING WET IN A WHITE BUTTON DOWN TAMAKI. mmmmmmmmm. seriously, it looks insanely fun, and im shipping everyone with everyone regardless of gender. Maybe it will end in a big orgy!

other then that, i might not have a job next year because teaching is screwing me over YET AGAIN! this time, it's because they gave me until June 2009 to complete 6 hours of course work. Which would be fine, only ONE of the classes i need isnt available in the summer, and OH YEAH, they didnt tell me which ones i needed until Jan 14. Which, again, would be fine, but the 14th was the cut off for SPRING semester. HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO GET THESE CLASSES HELLO? the head of HR called me. she told me i could always reapply next year to get a pure sped job. wow! that's just what i've always wanted! a reason to go back on prozac!

Fuck it. I'm raising llamas.

I suck at memes, honestly, but i generally make an attempt before giving up completely, and two seperate people have given me stuff they associate with me that i should explain, or whatever, so here goes.

comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

[ profile] ayekamn, who i've known since high school, associates me with:

intelligentsia, fanfic, your sisters, live-action asian shows, that you call your son Lord Voldemort )

And [ profile] princess_dexter associates me with:

ships, so bad it's good asian entertainment, your family, writing, beautiful asian men )

There! That took a while, but it was fun! Anybody else want to play?

Today, I watched Waterboys, mainly because a) it sounded cracked, and b) it has Tamaki Hiroshi in it. Tamaki Hiroshi is Chiaki-senpai in Nodame Cantabile, and I wanted more of his extremely attractive self.

This is how he looks in Nodame Cantabile. Sex on toast.

Tragically, this is how he looks in Waterboys.

Yes. With the afro. DEAR JOSS WHY?

Fortunately, halfway through the movie, this happens:

And we end up with this. Mmmmm.

Overall, a cute movie. Rather forgettable, probably, but very cute. And no, Tamaki Hiroshi isn't the main character, but he does still get to have his very own gay boy crushing on him - just like in Nodame!

Isn't he adorable?

Also, Struessman is in this as well, as the dolphin trainer who ends up training these guys. I have no pictures of him, though.

I'll probably end up watching the Waterboys drama, too, but Tamaki isn't in it, so I'm not feeling the need to watch it right now.

Instead, im back to easing my way through Proposal Daisakusen - im up to ep 5, and Im wondering about the times in between when Ken wasnt back in time. Did he go back to his casual ways? Because Im betting he is going from super sweet (when he is back in time) to being thoughtless (when he's just..his normal past self), and I bet it makes Rei CRAZY. he likes her, he doesnt like her, he likes her...i wonder how she kept from slapping him for five episodes?

although, the 'graduation' he threw for her as baseball manager was pretty much the awesomest thing ever. and his FACE when she found the button! HIS FAAAACE. *flails*


I'll leave you with this vivid image:
